The $100 million project, designed by Beyer Blinder Belle and developed by NYC Economic Development Corporation and Stillman Development International, will implement interior renovations and a vertical extension to double the structure's height.

Four new floors will be created above the old theater, which will be turned into new retail space. There will also be a rooftop space.

The location is accessible via the 1, 2, 3, 7, A, C, E, N, Q, R, W, and S trains at the 42nd Street-Times Square and 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal stations.

A finalized completion date has yet to be announced. Beyer Blinder Belle previously called for a 2020 deadline, but that was not achieved due to delays.
